This from the Black Rabbit of Inle's magnificent site.
Charles F. Wennerstrum (1889 - 1986) was an American lawyer from Illinois who served as a judge at some of the 12 Subsequent Nuremberg Trials, and was even the presiding judge in the Hostages Trial, where 12 Germans were tried, and the severest sentence handed-down was life imprisonment.
After eight months at Nuremberg, Wennerstrum gave an interview to Hal Foust, a journalist for the Chicago Daily Tribune, who was in Nuremberg covering the trials. Wennerstrum, expressed his disgust about how the trials had been conducted:
He stated the victors of WW2 had used the main Nuremberg trial to whitewash their war crimes, and pin the sole blame for the war in the hands of Germany
Much of the "American" staff at the Nuremberg trials, had only recently become Americans. Who "were imbedded in Europe's hatreds & prejudices." (ie Jews)
The defence had access only to documents the prosecution deemed necessary to the case
The prosecution complained bitterly when he ruled the defence will be allowed to view entire documents the prosecution only wished excerpts of to be shown
US Military Monitoring Journalists
The journalist Hal Foust also goes onto explain how the US military intercepted his article being transmitted back to America. And how he was given a rebuttal of Judge Wennerstrum's comments, before they had even been published.
Foust also states; it is not the first time the US Military had incepted his articles being transmitted back to America. He writes that after sending a tele-ticker of his exposé of the corruption at the Military Government's Rest & Recreation Centre in Garmisch, in the Bavarian Alps, he had been picked-up and interrogated by the American Military only hours later.
Despite the criticism Charles F. Wennerstrum received, he stood by his comments (details). Here's Hal Foust famous article, of his interview with Charles F. Wennerstrum, which appeared in the Chicago Daily Tribune February 23, 1948 here
